A New Partnership Forms with the Southeast Asian Community


OCRA forged a new partnership with a local Southeast Asian Community Center.  The Bridge of Modesto is located inside a county-owned neighborhood home and from this location, families from the Hmong, Laotian, and Cambodian communities are served regularly.  The Bridge offers services and supports in the areas of advocacy, housing, public benefits, education, healthcare, and many other county and state services.  With simultaneous translations into the Hmong, Laotian and Cambodian languages, OCRA provided an introduction to OCRA and a substantive legal training about Social Security eligibility.  OCRA has already scheduled additional legal trainings this summer on regional center services for Bridge Families.
